It’s getting toward sunset on February 5, 2021, as an eastbound BNSF unit oil train empty cruises over Bridge 55 at Trout Creek, Montana.
BNSF 9253 leads this eastbound stack train near Hodge on the Cajon Sub.
Two EMD SD70ACes lead an empty coal train around one of the many sharp curves on the Chattanooga Subdivision.
On a gorgeous morning, N850 passes the defect detector at milepost 93 and approaches Tittle Road. In a few minutes this train will pass through Defiance.
When I planned my trip to the MRL, this was one of the classic images I vowed to get. Add this classic all BN lashup and the only patch of blue sky and sunlight for miles and I was in heaven!
A dual window SD60M and two Oakways bring some shiny hoppers to the west.
5 EMD's are close behind 2 westbound double stacks with their long mixed freight.
